We are an active family of 4 who relish meeting new people. As 20-year Vancouver residents, we'd be happy to share with you all that we know about the area. From the 17 wineries now in Clark County, Washington (one in our family) to the array of cultural events in nearby Portland, OR, we look forward to sharing our house and surroundings with you. We enjoy hiking, biking, tennis, traveling, musical events, pickleball, words, philosophy, books, winery and brewery tours, organic cooking and dining, farmers' markets and more.
If you host us, you can expect to find your place in the condition in which you provided us or better. We're quiet, respectful guests interested in hearing your story.
